“Barely mentionable”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Had dinner there on a Sunday, the buffet was barely mentionable, most of the dishes lacked any seasoning or even salt!

Since we were staying there for one night, I had breakfast in the morning, it was just one small banana and a slice of mango and another sliced fruit, and the plate had a dead ant on it too!! They did not have a breakfast buffet selection or an a la cart option either.

They did serve some juice (packet not fresh) along with some toast and plain cake and they offered tea/coffee as well.

Not worth the visit.

“A true creole experience - go, eat and feel well”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Ate yesterday in Chez Plume and had a very friendly and tasty experience.
Very good soups (try the crab) and fantastic creole fish (the way they made and serve grupper was very simple but super good).
Enough choices if you are for fish and seafood. A very special plus for service, the lady made us feel at home, fast, knowlegeable and always smiling.
It is not a fancy place ! We read it is the best seafood place in that part of Mahe so we dressed a little, but found people very casual mixed with smart casual looking, all OK.
Just one negative advice - we were told is the best lobster restaurant on the island, so we took a 600g one.
It was not bad, but nothing special, so 750 Rp from the total of 1200 was not worth it.
We both preffered the fish.
Go and dine if you are into fish, good food, good price, nice service.

“Excellent food, great service!!!”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

This is by far one of my favourite restaurant on Mahe, the food is amazing and compare to all the other restaurants not overpriced, nothing to complain about the service. Keep it up! Would highly recommend this place to anyone for good creole cuisine.

“For a creole night out”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

From the outside one might refrain to actually walk in, PLEASE overcome the fear. It's one of the rare places what serves quality seafood and exquisite creole dishes. Nice friendly staff... makes you feel at home.

The only setback is the ambiance... need a complete makeover.
